Re: Calling All ICE Men


Dont know on a 156? But have you attempted it?

On my 147 there are three screws at the bottom.

Three to look out for:

1) Small one behind a cover in the handle opening
2) A cover actually in the pull handle on the inside (under a cover - great design Alfa!)
3) One under the electric window switches (another gay one)

Then it should just lift up (give it some welly), then pull out towards you. Its got those christmas tree clips on so will take a bit of effort!

Post a picture and I can tell you probably where all the screws are

Re: Calling All ICE Men

Screw off the door lock knob (anticlockwise)

Take the door handle cover and tweeter out. One screw hidden behind a plastic cover behind the door handle. From memory you pull the back out a little then slide it a little bit backwards (with the handle open) and then it comes straight out. Front Tweeter then unplugs.

There a rubber mat at the base of the handgrab thingy (behind the electric window switch). That simply pulls up and out and there's 2 allan key bolts underneath. Once those are out the whole palstic bit pulls up from the rear end then slides out. You may have to disconnect the electric window wiring. Mine is colour coded to the plugs so check that yours are so you know which goes back to where before unplugging.

Pull the big speaker covers off. There's small little bumps that show where its held in by retaining clips. Slide a small flathead screwdriver down the gap where these little bumps are and it pops out. there's a little tab at the bottom so you need to work from the top and the sides and then the covers lift up and out.

Take the speaker out (4 screws) and behind that is 2 screws that hold the speaker mount to the door. Once you've got those out the whole door card is held on by push on studs. Pull door card of at bottom and work your was up front and rear sides. Once it's free, lift door card up at rear and it comes out. No need to take off the plastic triangle on the inside of the mirror.

Thats almost it.
Just 2 more allan key bolts. Have a look in the hole where the handgrabs where. there you find 2 bolts. Undo those before you remove the door.
